Using Ninox seems like pulling teeth!

Having attempted for the past week to create a database of relationships between family members, husband-wife, siblings, parent-child, and failed miserably, I've given up and moved to Tapforms where this seems a relatively simple process. I just cannot understand why Ninox doesn't seem to have join tables. Everything is complex and trial and error. I've watched hours of Nioxus videos. Anything that requires a many-to-many relationships from one table such as biological family relationships seems impossible to achieve with Ninox.

  • It's not Ninox, it's the problem, which is quite a complex one. I have just posted a solution in response to your request a few hours ago which I hope restores some faith in Ninox.

    Thank for your response. I appreciate your solution, but it seems that greater knowledge and coding is required to do this with Ninox. I had hope it would be simpler.

  • Svs - All software systems have advantages and disadvantages - However I do agree that in part the lack of a decent technical manual on Ninox does not help. (the online one is err a bit basic!)

    I tried many systems before settling on Ninox - I'm not a programmer by any stretch of the imagination but what i can say is the in less that 1 year I have developed on a complete system to enable me to move my business production system totally into the cloud using Ninox. I did this with the fantastic and excellent support from many forum users and Ninox's own support. If you change your mind - I can assure you we will all help you to achieve your goal.

    Tapforms is good but it will give you different issues that you will need to get around! - However good luck with your endeavours.

    Kind regards

    Mel

    Svs, if you do continue to give Ninox a try, you can start posting your ideas and we can all help you plan as Ninox does change how you approach your tables.
